    4K Blu-Ray Players

    Pretty sure I do, but I was going to rewire everything anyway because I'm finally going from 5.1 to 6.1 after many years of not having a good physical setup for a rear speaker. Exciting times. All I have connected right now are Roku, PS4, and Switch, and I can move the Switch if it's taking up...

    4K Blu-Ray Players

    Yeah I jumped on that. Thanks folks. Of course now I'm worried by receiver is "too old" (it's from 2015 - Onkyo TNR-646). It seems to pass things through just fine to my new LG CX television - I have a Roku Ultra and PS4 and many streaming things I watch kick the TV into HDR mode, but I guess I...

    4K Blu-Ray Players

    What have people got? I've been waiting on getting a PS5, but I got a few 4K BDs for Christmas and just looking into it now, seems like the specs on the PS5 aren't super great. So maybe I'll spring for a standalone player. Any recommendations?

    4G Android phone megathread

    Oh and they're going to stop supporting my phone soon: https://gizmodo.com/rip-pixel-3-1847985883

    4G Android phone megathread

    It's meant to happen when you press the power button five times. But my power button has been janky lately (since I ran the Boston Marathon, so probably got some sweat in there) so I'm constantly opening the camera app (double click) which was already annoying enough. Anyway go to your settings...

    4G Android phone megathread

    It's annoying me a lot on my Pixel 3 since I downloaded it this morning. I've already accidentally called the Mass State Police twice from clicking the power button wrong. I don't like how there aren't separate toggles for WiFi and cellular data. And I really don't need my screen to shimmer when...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Sadly this is not how it went when I showed my wife Slither last night. Four or five ads randomly placed in the first half of the movie.

    SOSH Running Dogs

    Great job! I managed 4:11 at Boston yesterday. That's my fourth-slowest marathon, but given how badly I've been doing for two years now, and especially the last two months, my only goal had been to keep it under five hours, and I wasn't totally sure I could do that. The crowd was like 25% of...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Guess I'll ask here too: If I have the $5 level of Peacock and try to watch a movie, when do the ads play? All up front, or do they cut in?

    Uh, what's going on here?

    SOSH Running Dogs

    Anyone else running Boston? I'm on my third year of injuries but managed to shuffle through last year's virtual. This year at least it'll approximate the real thing, though I've only been to one team group run and I'm probably not going to the pasta party, and there won't be anything in...

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    Yes but now I am adrift in a sea of indecision.

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    Right now I have a Surface 3 that I both use as a tablet and laptop, though not much anymore for either since I moved and my desktop is in a much more convenient place than it used to be. But it's gotten quite slow. I kinda want both a new tablet and a new laptop. The tablet for the indoor...

    HDR Sucks

    Okay this is weird. I'm using my new LG CX. I load up Disney+ on Roku. I turn on Endgame. The TV announces I'm now in HDR mode! Yay! But apparently I have to redo my settings because I've only calibrated for SDR. Fine. But as I'm about to do that, the image goes out and the No Signal message...

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    The new hotness (LG CX 55"), complete with TV stand as recommended by @The_Powa_of_Seiji_Ozawa which perfectly fits my center channel on its base under the TV:
